Art Souvenir: Bertel Thorvaldsen
Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770–1844) is one of Denmark’s best-known artists. The son of a carver from Iceland, Thorvaldsen was born in Copenhagen and entered the Royal Academy of Art at the age of 11 with unusually bright talent. At age 26 he left his native city to continue his studies in Rome, then the world’s art capital. Thorvaldsen stayed in Rome for nearly 40 years, becoming one of the most important European representatives of neoclassical sculptural art.
